Twenty-one landcover classes are described for Katmai, and are mapped at intermediate scales (1:63,360 to 1:100,000) using Landsat Thematic Mapper multi-spectral imagery. The classification follows, with modifications, The Alaska Vegetation Classification (Viereck et al. 1992) system at levels II through IV.
